Kelly welcomes determination on Glengormley parade

16 April, 2015 - by Gerry Kelly

Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has welcomed a determination by the Parades Commission to restrict an Orange Order parade in Glengormley. 

Mr Kelly said; 

"I welcome today's decision by the Parades Commission to place restrictions on this parade. 

"This is a new parade and Sinn Féin met with the Parades Commission to discuss it. 

"It has been diverted away from the Children's Hospice and nearby nationalist homes and that is to be welcomed. 

"The original application was unnecessary and provocative and the local community will be pleased with this determination. 

"It reinforces the point that dialogue is key to resolving issues around contentious parades."
